The film GERMANIA explores young men on their search for identity in a time of impermanence and constant change. In observing scenes, the film approaches the members of the student fraternity Corps Germania. For the members of the conservative fraternity, it is a living democracy and a school for life. For outsiders, however, it is a claustrophobic cosmos with strict rules, rigid hierarchy and strange rituals. But what does it mean to be a man, what are they searching for in the digital age, where does one's political attitude come from, and when do you make life changing decisions? 2018
